“A man who wants to lead the orchestra, must turn his back on the crowd.” Anon
In the human race that we are all part of, a major part of surviving is the bonding we do with our fellow human beings. We connect with others whose energy we feel safe with. Before we even talk we are getting messages through our energy ‘feelers,’ about whether we want to continue reaching out to the person or moving on. It can take us out of our comfort zone to stand alone from the crowd even if we don’t feel that comfortable in the crowd we’re with.
I have coached people who are in this situation where they have outgrown the ‘crowd,’ but don’t have another group to join and it can feel very uncomfortable. It’s the same with a personal relationship. We would rather stay with the discomfort of what we know than move on to the comfort we don’t know. Helping people look at the fears that are keeping them stuck is part of what I do. The conductor may be turning his back on the crowd, but he is facing the musicians who are playing his music. What is it going to take for you to step into the life you would prefer?
Enjoy turning your back on the things and people holding you stuck!
